This paper considers a number of conceptual and measurement issues associated with the implementation costs of a new tax. It reviews Canadian and Australian estimates, and suggests that the implementation costs of the GST in Australia would range from $4-5 billion dollars. The implications for tax revenue, the price level and efficiency gains of the GST start-up operating costs are also discussed.
